"We have been doing wedding shows and bridal open houses for over seven years now, both big and small. From our experience, the best wedding shows allow us to connect with brides and grooms on one on one basis, in an intimate setting. Smaller shows, offering a variety of vendors fitting most wedding days needs, tend to be our most productive and successful opportunities to connect in a meaningful way. We feel that brides tend to be less overwhelmed and more focused on their wedding day interests, without the distractions of a carnival-like atmosphere you often find in larger shows with hundreds of vendors."

"We began participating in Central PA Wedding Shows two years ago. Being a vendor in central Harford County, Maryland, our team desired to do more weddings in southern PA vs. weddings in the DC and northern VA area. Dealing with traffic and parking logistics in that area is stressful. So I wanted to get more work in the southern PA area, where those stressors don’t exist. I thought about advertising on Wedding Pro in those areas, but stumbled on the Central PA Wedding Shows in a Facebook post. We decided to give them a try, and it’s been one of the best business decisions we’ve made.
It seems we’ll book at least 1-2 weddings from each show, and often a lot more. So many, in fact, that I decided to drop Wedding Pro all together and put that investment into the Central PA Wedding Shows. I’m blown away by Heather’s attention to detail and drive, and most importantly, her desire to make sure the shows are a success for all… vendors and prospective couples alike. The feedback we get from those couples is amazing. They love the format of visiting various venues and meeting with vendors across the wedding spectrum. And they feel confident that if they book any vendors who attends these shows, they know they’re getting a true professional that cares about what they do, as Heather sees to it that only reputable vendors are on hand.
In the last two years, we’ve filmed less and less weddings in the DC area, and a lot more in the southern PA area, all thanks to Central PA Wedding Shows and Heather’s hard work. We’re forever grateful and look forward to participating in the shows for years to come.
